I'm sorry, but enough is enough. Netflix is cancelling a lot of their programs because people are tired of the wokeness, even Cartoon Network is re-rebooting the Powerpuff girls and Involving the original creator this time because people did not watch that woke reboot they put out back in 2016.

Media is shifting away from the average, frumpy, sort of androgynous look for women because women have been complaining about it.

It's about damn time they start doing the same thing for TR. Enough with the frumpy, sloppy looking outfits that aren't form fitting and treat Lara Croft like an actual person who doesn't walk out the door like that because even your average American joe knows to have a bit of decency and comfort when going outside.

The face makes no sense at all, it's like what even.
I agree wholeheartedly.

I really like this Melonie Mac week you're having. We could almost become best friends.

Shame you'll probably swing to the other extreme again next week because the Moon will be in Gemini and Uranus will be going through its Saturn transit. But that's life.

Idk why you would bring someone like her up when I don't care what she's saying or doing at all. She's not a TR ambassador or influencer anymore. Let her be.

Second of all idk what extreme your referring to. Have you actually read Twitter, a majority of the fan base is having similar reaction regardless of what era they stan.

Yes it is a very ugly looking Lara, but we don't know if this has any formal affiliation with the game developers who design Lara croft in the games...
I'm guessing SE basically went to Weta and said "Hey, can you please design this Lara Croft statue for the 25th Anniversary, your previous models have been really good?" and Weta went "Yes, of course". I really don't think this has anything to do with being Woke. I've noticed in general, game figures can look laughably bad. I know Weta are usually a bit better and are known for their high quality.

This is an ugly statue that is ruining my taste for tomb raider. Her face looks hideous. It looks like one of those snapchat filters that is trending these days. Absolute trash I must say. The past statues should now be even more appreciated.

For what itís worth calling those statues is same as calling Lego action figures.

This line of Weta is qual to Funko POPs, Prime 1 Cute1 or Iron Studioís MiniCo lines. They are just stylized figurines that only meant to resemble the characters they represent.

Check their other figures for The Witcher, Stranger Things to see what the line is like.

If itís not your cup of tea thatís fair but donít compare those to the high-end collectibles as their Anniversary or SotTR statues.

It's not even funny at this point, just disappointing.

Who even signs off on these awful things?

Why is it exactly Bjork?
